I always shop at the consignment shops but where i work a bunch of us moms bring in our clothes and play swap around.  It saves alot of money for us. Yard Sales are great a well.

We organised a Clothing Swap night at our church.  clothes were dropped off throughout the week and then were arranged for people to browse through.  We even hung up makeshift dressing areas and had lots of mirrors.  Everthing was free and hot drinks and snacks were also provided.  It was a great evening, with lots of laughs.

Freecycle.com is a great website, where people list items they don't need anymore. It's a great place to get some great clothes, you don't even have to come out of pocket.
Otherwise, I shop at kohls clearance racks when they have th 15/20/30% off scratch cards. It's like paying 20% of the original price i can usually walk away with shirts or pants for around $3-$5 each!!

I have save LOTS of money by getting items online at freecycle.org.This site is world wide and has a site just for the city that you live in. When you sign up you will recieve emails letting you know if an item is offered, taken, wanted, or recieved. This is also a great way for you to get rid of some of the items that are cluttering your home that you do not need or want anymore. Freecycle is not just for clothing, I have received many items from clothes for my self and my 2 boys along with food items and toys. This site helped me tremendously at CHRISTmas time.

We have 7 children and have second hand shopped since I can remember. I personaly have never liked the game of marking something up to mark it down with retail "sales". My Husband and I recently opened a not for profit Thrift Store in Bristol,WI. We play KLOVE 105.3 in our store and in our back workroom. We have various programs that are part of our ministry community service and work crew from the sherrifs department. At first the comment usually is do I have to listen to christian music...by the time the end of their sentence they are usually singing along and asking God questions...I would suggest when shopping/donating ask where the your money goes don't assume...In case your wondering our proceeds go to further the gospel of Jesus Christ..we support missionaries on a monthly basis, short and long term mission trips gospel centered church plants etc..thanks for letting me add my imput. God Bless!

I'm a teenager but i don't mind wearing used clothes. I love going to thrift stores and hospices. My dad works for a wealthier family and their older daughters donate huge bags of not so cheap clothing, it was such i blessing for us; we had "new" clothes for the new school year! And you can always find great bargains at any store if you look hard enough =)

Dear Scott and Kelli,

Gap and Old Navy have good deals, and Aeropostale clothes go on sale for cheap, too. (I'm a 12 year old shopaholic) Some Children's Place clothes fit me, like this awesome pleated black skirt goes perfect with my pink Hollister T-shirt and my new Converse black knee-high boots that I got at Nordstrom. Love and prayers all the way, K-LOVE!
